a few weeks ago we hiked the panther branch trail.
we woke up with the sunrise after camping in the woods.
after packing up our things, we brewed two cups of coffee
and readied ourselves for a day hike before heading back home.
we wandered across debord falls and a single stream
that flowed down from the top of the mountain into a
rushing river below. the rocks were covered in moss and
wildflowers were beginning to bloom along the trail. at the
top of the mountain was a solemn campsite. complete with
a single fire pit, fifty odd square feet of land and a breathtaking view.
